Leister Park

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences


This past weekend hubby and I checked out a new walking trail in a new local park..The Leister Park is a new 100 acre park includes the walking trail, a pavalion and athletic fields. The land was sold to the county for half of its worth because the land owner wanted it to be used for green space. Great news for the community and the county. I have some great fence and sky shots from our walk on the new trial, the clouds and sky looked beautiful.

 The weather was beautiful for walking, the sky and clouds were lovely.


 I will be going back to check out these fields for some different birds.


Skywatching is a simple thing I love to do, it is right up there with my birdwatching. I think this is a perfect sky with the pretty clouds and a lovely blue color..


For Tex's Good Fence entry I have a view of a cow on a neighboring farm next to the park..


A distant view of the farm and cow, and you can just barely make out the fence..



 The Eastern Bluebirds are one of my favorite birds, I am always happy to see them. Some fuzzy branch had to get in my way but you can still see the pretty male Bluebird..




The male is in the photo up and this one is the pretty female.. They were hanging out somewhat close to each. 


After seeing my last couple of Skywatch shots you must know I loving taking photos of the moon.. Here is a shot fo the crescent moon taken on April 24th.  There were some light clouds floating in front at the time of the shot..


These two moon shots were taken early in the morning before I left for work..


To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check out Tex's Good Fences


Thanks to Tex @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

  3. You found a new place to explore Eileen, and it looks very inviting. What a great guy to let his land go cheaply for the sake of the community and wildlife. Have a great weekend. We are off to Spain but hope to keep in touch with blogging pals.

  12. Beautiful shots. I love it when people donate or sell land at a discount for green spaces or parks. Tulsa is lucky in that regard and it looks like where you live is fortunate as well.
